This primary publication to hide in-depth the iteration of x-rays in particle accelerators makes a speciality of electron beams produced via the radical power restoration Linac (ERL) expertise. The ensuing hugely outstanding x-rays are on the centre of this monograph, which keeps the place different books out there cease.
Written essentially for normal, excessive power and radiation physicists, the systematic therapy followed through the paintings makes it both appropriate as a complicated textbook for younger researchers.

For emphasis, let us repeat the last point. Both the Courant–Snyder formalism and the wave description of this section contain more “physics” than is contained in geometric optics. The beam waist is a characteristic feature of a particle beam in free space, and a focus is a characteristic feature of a wave in free space. Curiously, even though the Courant–Snyder contains no wavelike ingredient, it gives the same behavior near a waist that the wave theory gives near a focus. This means there is a kind of wave-particle duality even in classical physics.

The “extra path length” at transverse displacement y is therefore approximately f + y2 / (2 f ) − f . With a view towards obtaining two conditions, one for motion for which y is negligible, and another where y motion is important, we seek a solution of this equation in the form ψ = exp iP(z) + ik y2 1 . 6. Expressing wave phases on the transverse plane through O, for a plane wave parallel to the axis, the phase would be zero everywhere on the plane. Suppose the phase is actually given by ky2 /(2 f ).

37) Finally, by Eq. 28), the wave field is given Ψ (y, z) = Ψ0 w0 z exp − i tan−1 w(z) z0 exp ikz + y2 2 1 ik . 38) This is rather complicated, but the magnitude of Ψ depends only on the real part of the exponent, which is −y2 /(2w2 (z)). s. beam width. The first exponential factor, being purely imaginary, has no effect on the absolute value and, furthermore is independent of y. This factor (known as the “Gouy phase factor”) will be unimportant in the sequel. 39 40 2 Beams Treated as Waves We now apply this functional form to describe the wave near a “point focus”.
